Our Mission

To educate and empower New York City High School students to achieve their goals through the prudent and informed management of their financial resources. 


Program Structure 

  • The curriculum is taught in seven 45 minute learning sessions that are generally on the same day over consecutive weeks.  Short homework assignments are administered between classes
  • Class times are flexible and may be structured to include 1-3 learning sessions
  • Teachers are professionals who work for schools, law firms, banks, and other nonprofits 
  • All classes are taught by experienced teachers and new teachers to ensure quality, but also to promote fresh teaching ideas
  • Class sizes vary but the student-to-teacher ratio never exceeds 8-to-1 
  • Cents Ability teaches and administers all student materials free of charge 


Cents Ability volunteers are empowering young adults to take control of their financial futures at NYC high schools and community-based organizations.  In addition to our financial literacy training workshops, we host fundraisers and volunteer recognition events to raise money, celebrate successes and build unity.
